Performance of Seashell Powder on Sub-grade Soil Stabilization

7 pagesPublished: July 22, 2017

Abstract

In India, increase in population coupled with heavy laden loads of vehicles conveying heavier stresses concentrates especially on roads running in clayey soil zones which create significant problems for pavements and hence need to be stabilized. Insecure soils make huge issues for asphalts and henceforth should be settled. In this study, at first the examination of normal soil is done to assess the physical and engineering properties as indicated by Indian Standard (1498 – 1970) by coordinating exploration focus tests and to evaluate the adjustment in properties by the utilizing sea shell powder as a part of dose of 12%, 15% and 18% as stabilizers to be used as a part of the asphalt configuration for the economy. Understanding the progressions in sub- grade quality, the correct outline systems of the asphalt layers based upon the sub grade quality can be worked out utilizing IRC code and comparative saving cost per km.
